I really don't care for it. Now I am trying to upload and keep getting "bad data" errors. <BR><BR>&lt;?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?&gt;<BR><code>BadContent</code>Uploaded content is unacceptable.Item metadata collection value refers to nonexistant collection: af773888-8dd6-4f98-99d6-7a25d4dd16ea<BR><BR>How much do I have to donate to get the classic uploader back ;)

In addition to Jeff's suggestion (which I think is fixed now), we are also seeing it when you don't select the band from the list, but rather manually type the band's name out fully. Once you type enough of the band's name to get a match, simply select it from the list rather than type it out. The issues you describe usually result from a typo in the band name which is prevented if you select it from the list.<BR><BR>If you can't find the band in the list, please email us at etree at archive dot org with the details and we'll assist in sorting it out.

Although now it's not deriving for some reason. When I try to manually derive, it says there's already a task. I tried the old tried and true method of turning off lossless, waiting 5 minutes and turning it back on no dice. Any suggestions please? <a href="https://archive.org/details/yarn2016-02-27.flac16" target="_blank">https://archive.org/details/yarn2016-02-27.flac16</a> Thanks again!

One of your apostrophe's is a curly apostrophe, not UTF-8 encoded. I'll fix it and upload a new copy of the text file. Then restart the derive.<BR><BR>This most often happens when using a text editor where the encoding is not set to Unicode UTF-8. It will look like plain text, but it is encoded at some high bit character setting. If you look the file, you will see the offending characters as question marks in a black diamond instead of the character. What I have seen this week is problems with curly apostrophes (" ’ ", tildes ("ñ"), and accented characters ("é"). The derive fails and no files are created for the player to use.<BR><BR>The solution is to make sure you are using a plain text editor with encoding set to UTF-8. Suggest by the support team at Internet Archive are textedit (in plain text mode), bbedit, textwrangler or others. I personally use Editpad Lite with the encoding set to Unicode, UTF-8.

Ahh yes, I copied and pasted one of the song names from the web into the Windows Notepad file after looking it up to confirm it online (Fussin' and Fightin'). Had I not been lazy and manually typed it, Notepad would have encoded it properly. Can we get facepalm emojis for the forum?<BR><BR>Thanks again!

what is the collection/band you were trying to upload to? the issue seems to be with collections that do not yet have any uploads.<BR>
